SANBORN, N.Y. -- Prospective pilots began a course Wednesday that prepares them to be certified to fly drones.
The course comes after the FAA announced last month that drone operators need to be licensed.
Niagara County Community College (NCCC) is offering a new 18-hour course that teaches students to operate drones and prepares them for the certification exam.
Given drones have been found to transform many businesses, there has been high interest in the class.
